This is what we do at Pathways Middle College.
“Find your strengths and compensate for your weaknesses.” This is an excellent video about overcoming learning differences. It makes me even more proud of the number of students with learning disabilities that we have been able to put in college classes in the past two years. Accommodations and appropriate supports are the key…being honest with kids about those challenge areas and helping them understand that there is nothing to be ashamed of…and helping them develop critical compensatory skills so that they can overcome the barriers. Time to go to work now….
